Lynk & Co is a joint project between Geely and Volvo (acquired by Geely in 2010). It was founded in 2016 in Gothenburg, Sweden, as an international brand. The Lynk & Co model line in China comprises seven vehicles (01, 02, 03, 05, 06, 08 and 09). In the overseas markets, Lynk & Co keeps it simple with one model: the Lynk & Co 01.
Lynk & Co 06 EM-P
In July 2023, Lynk & Co 06 EM-P got mass-production permission from the Chinese regulator. The new SUV is ready to hit the production line in Lynk & Co’s Meishan plant. Today, the company officially unveiled the 06 EM-P with the slogan “The Next Day, The Next One”. The exterior styling of the new SUV follows the design language of the recently launched Lynk & Co 08 fastback crossover. It has signature running light units atop the bonnet and headlights integrated into the grille. From the back, the 06 EM-P has a large taillight unit.
Dimensions of the Lynk & Co 06 EM-P are 4350/1820/1625 mm with a wheelbase of 2640 mm. It still stands on the BMA (B-segment Modular Architecture) platform that underpins the Geely Emgrand sedan and Geely Binyue (Coolray) SUV.
Inside, the Lynk & Co 06 EM-P also aligns with the 08. It has a three-spoke sporty steering wheel with a gear shifter on the steering column. Behind the wheel, we can also notice a thin LCD instrument cluster. The Lynk & Co 06 EM-P also offers a sizeable floating center screen. Other features of this small SUV are huge mirrors in sun visors, two wireless charging pads, and high-quality materials.
Under the hood, the Lynk & Co 06 EM-P has the BHE15 1.5-liter naturally aspirated petrol-powered engine for 120 hp. It is paired with two electric motors. As a result, the total power output of the 06 EM-P reaches 220 kW (299 hp) and 568 hp. The battery capacity of the 06 EM-P is 19.09 kWh, good for 102 km of electric range. According to the local regulator, the Lynk & Co 06 EM-P’s fuel consumption is 4.98 L/100km.
The Lynk & Co 06 will hit the Chinese market this year with a starting price of about 180,000 yuan (24,700 USD). We will keep an eye on it, so stay tuned.
